The Craven Meeting

The Craven Meeting takes place between the 16th-17th April on the Rowley Mile Course and is the opening meeting of the year at Newmarket. It is the first opportunity that race followers will have the chance to see the form of some of the best horses in training as well as the early season form of the trainers and jockeys.

There are three Group races, the Nell Gwynne Stakes a Group Three for 3 year old fillies over seven furlongs, many of who will have entries for the 1000 Guineas. On the second day the Craven Stakes over 1 mile is also a Group Three race for 3 year old colts, several of whom will have 2000 Guineas aspirations.

Other excellent races during the meeting include the Abernant Stakes, the Swaffham Handicap, the Free handicap and the Earl Of Sefton Stakes, which is the third of the Group three races , but this one is four year olds over a distance of 1 mile 1 furlong .

The meeting is always well attended, providing outstanding entertainment and is the perfect curtain raiser to the new season.
